More life drawings



In my last post some nice folks wished to see more from last week´s life drawing session. I finally found the time to scan some more sketches this evening, so here they are!

Pencil sketches and ink pen with ink washes in drawing pad and sketchbook. Various sizes.

Very good, as usual. You have quite impressively developed drawing skills. I have found that increases in my own skill has been very rewarding, exciting, and encouraging--as well as increasing my confidence considerably. Have you found that life drawing (real things as opposed to, say, drawing from photos or computer generated stuff, including 3-D) has augmented your drawing abilities?

Hi Nina, your life drawings are exquisite, they are so good. Each pose comes into its own with the shading, the choice of lines. Did you do all these poses on one paper so the figures deliberately overlap...I love that outlay!

Hi Ronell,
thanks for your kind words! No, I scanned them and made a collage of sorts in Photoshop.

They're wonderful, Nina! We're talking about organizing a life-sketching group here, and the more I see of your work the more I can't wait!

At the risk of repeating myself - these are just wonderful. I truly love the way you draw. You manage to put in so much detail without losing sight of the overall gesture. You inspire me to work much harder!

Great work...OF course:> like the collage...neat idea...

Alison said...

Putting them together like this is wonderful - I'm always a bit put off life drawing classes because I end up with so many bits of paper, I don't know what to do with. Thanks for the idea.

I'm with the others...the collage works so well.

I like them all on the same paper. A great unity going on. Isn's life drawing the best. It's been a few years now, but I felt my work really grew at the time I did life drawing.

Jag har just startat en blogg om mitt tecknande. Hittade din och blev förtjust. Länkade till din webbsajt på min blogg. OK?
